A team of 4 boys and 4 girls visited Woodfarm last Friday with Mrs McGarvey to take part in a Cluster Badminton Tournament. The team had the opportunity to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles games. We enjoyed taking part and wish Giffnock, the cluster winners, success in the East Renfrewshire Tournament later in the session. Some of the team are attending the Badminton Event at the Emirates Arena this weekend after our school obtained free tickets. The badminton after school club will continue next term led by Mrs McGarvey.

The East Renfrewshire Convoy to Calais leaves this Thursday at 8pm from the car park of ER Council HQ in Eastwood Park, Giffnock. They are taking the largest single donation from anywhere in Scotland. Schools and nurseries from all over East Renfrewshire responded with overwhelming generosity to the appeal. All parents, children and staff are invited to be there for the send-off. The convoy organisers want to give the families who contributed the opportunity to see their donations leave, and to send the convoy off in style.
We hope you can join us

Our first Parent Council meeting of the session is on Wednesday 7 October 2015 at 7.00pm in Woodfarm High School. You will be aware from the newsletter that we are very keen to get some more parents to join.
As this is our first meeting of the session, we thought it would be nice to add a more social aspect to it. We believe that this first meeting is a great opportunity for parents to get the chance to meet each other, the Parent Council and learn a bit more about the life of the school.
On Wednesday we will have tea, coffee and cakes available after the meeting and hope to meet many of you in a more informal setting. Attending this first meeting will give you a flavour of the work that the Parent Council does and in no way means you are committing to attending every meeting.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening.
School and Nursery will be closed on Friday 9 October for an In-Service day and closed the following week beginning 12 October for the October week holiday. School and Nursery will re-open on Monday 19 October.
